When it comes to gifts, there are not many that will contend with His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s gift to President Xi of China. The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, gifted the horse to the Chinese President Xi Jinping on Jinping’s recent trip to the Abu Dhabi Presidential Palace on Friday.
Sheikh Mohamed commented,
“In honour of the historic friendship and strong ties which brought our two countries together, as well as a token of appreciation for how much we respect and value this relationship, we gift Chinese President Xi Jinping one of the best purebred Arabian horses.”
‘Gallardo J’, born in 2013, is a purebred Arabian horse and is the 2016 Triple Crown Champion, a European All Nations Cup champion, World Gold Champion and a Jr. Colt champion.
The horse was also the winner of Sharjah horse racing cup in the UAE.
